Cancel those emails

Today's frugal living tip: Don't tempt yourself with email coupons and catalogs

One of the first things I'm doing to make sure I meet my goal of paying off my last two credit cards is committing to not spending. We basically have everything we need to get through the summer, and if not, I'll deal with that when it comes up.

To that point, I am unsubscribing from every email list and catalog I get. $20 for a $60 Banana Republic shirt is still $20, and I just don't want to be tempted. I just recycled the Toms catalog without even looking at it- a little painful, but worth it.

The only exception is the J Crew catalog, because I like it for ideas. I'd never order anything from there anyway (is it me, or is their pricing insane now?)
